What to do from the Finca

What to do from the Finca

We think there is anything you can think of, we are centrally located with our B&B for various trips
Get in the mood just like that by clicking and watching a video

Malaga 30 min
Most guests fly to Malaga Airport and leave in our rental car. But don't forget to visit this city. Just a 30 minutes from Finca Gordo you are in the center of the capital of the province of the same name. There is something for everyone to enjoy: shopping in the Calle Marqués de Larios, viewing historical monuments, such as the Cathedral from 1700 or the Castillo Gilbralfaro and nearby the fortress Alcazaba.
For those who love gardens, Jardin de la Concepción is a must, just on the outskirts of Malaga on the route to Riogordo.
If you just want to stroll along the boulevard near the harbor, you can do so too: marvel at the huge cruise ships that dock there and allow their passengers to explore Malaga.
If it is unexpectedly rainy, or too hot, visit one of the museums: Museo Carmen Thyssen, Center Pompidou (an annex of Paris) or the Picasso museum. After all, Pablo is also a born Malagueño. Need more tips: you can of course just knock on our door.

Granada 65 minutes
The historic city of Granada with the world famous Alhambra is an hour's drive from our Finca (click here to reserve tickets). A huge historical palace from the Moorish era, very worthwhile, it is not for nothing on the Unesco World Heritage list. The Albaucin district at the foot of the Alhambra, with nice restaurants and narrow alleys, is well worth a visit. What is also special about Granada is that you almost always see snow on the mountain peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

Antequera 40 minutes
A special city, but less known in our province of Malaga. 30,000 inhabitants, nice center and beautiful Arena. Very worthwhile to visit and take a nice walk through the city center. Combine well with a walk on El Torcal, an impressive mountain range and the saltwater lagoon Fuente de Piedra. A salt lake where flamingos breed. And also only 30 minutes from Finca Gordo, which makes it a nice day trip. In the morning, a nice walk in the nature park and then a lunch in the city around 2 p.m. Shop for the ladies and then return to our finca to take a refreshing dip in the pool. Of course you can still enjoy a sunset that never bored us.

Ronda 55 minutes
After a nice drive of about 1 hour you will reach Ronda, one of the oldest cities in Spain. Located on a mountain plateau of 2500 m above sea level. The city is best known for the El Tajo gorge that divides the old and new city but is now connected again by the mighty Puente Nuevo bridge. Ronda is touristy, but definitely worth a day trip. Try to drive the outward journey differently than the return journey and also enjoy the special landscapes. We can offer you some beautiful car routes and you will experience even more of the fantastic surroundings.

Cordoba 100 minutes
Another city that has a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We are of course talking about the Mezquita . First a Catholic Church, then demolished and a Mosque was built in 756. After the last Moors were driven out of the area, the building was transformed into a cathedral again in 1236. The church is actually built around the Mosque. This has created a unique structure that is really worth a visit. But if you are in the city, walk through the narrow streets. And if you still have time, visit the Medina Azahara located just outside Cordoba. That is an old walled Arab city from the time of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Marbella 60 minutes
If you want to see how the jet set experiences the Costa del Sol, take a day trip to Marbella. Marvel at the big yachts and expensive cars and enjoy the old town. The drive there is mainly between towers of hotels and apartments; you now also know why we chose the other side of Malaga.

Day at the beach and sea
From our bed & breakfast you are on the coast, with the wonderful beaches of the Costa del Sol. In Málaga there are fantastic beaches to relax and there are plenty of cozy traditional eateries. Quieter are the wide beaches at Torre del Mar, with excellent eateries and the so-called chiringuitos, beach bars where you can eat freshly grilled fish. A little further along the coast just past Nerja is the village of Maro, where there are beautiful quiet bays hidden between the mountains. If you want more excitement, the beaches at Torremolinos and Benalmádena are also an option.

Nature and hiking
It is recommended to put on the walking shoes and enjoy the surroundings. From the bed & breakfast you can already take beautiful walks. Or you take the car and drive for example to el Torcal or Nerja. And yes, if you can get a ticket then you should definitely walk the Caminito del Rey ! A little busy, but definitely a bucket list item. If this does not work then we also have a spectacular hike at Canillas de Aceituno. The alternative to the caminito del rey.

About 1.5 hours drive from the bed & breakfast you are already standing on the long limbs. From November to April you have the opportunity to enjoy the snow. Hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just enjoying the beautiful white view.
